Sony Xperia Z3 Leaks alongside the Galaxy Note 3

July 12, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

It seems like since yesterday afternoon, we’ve been seeing an onslaught of Xperia Z3 leaks. Just yesterday we saw our first round of pictures and now today we’ve gotten a second round. Now we are on the third round of leaked pictures of the Xperia Z3. Pretty crazy, right? This time we’re looking at the Xperia Z3 alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and as you can see from the image above, the are the same length. As a reminder, the Galaxy Note 3 dimensions are 146.9 x 83 x 9.7 mm. And it has a 5.7-inch display, although I’m sure the Xperia Z3’s display isn’t quite that big as usually Sony likes to have quite a bit of bezel in there, which you can see from these pictures. 

So far there’s not a whole lot of confirmed specs for the Xperia Z3, but we are looking at Android 4.4.4 launching on the Xperia Z3 at likely IFA in September. We are also seeing the same 20.7MP camera that was on the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z2 last year and earlier this year, respectively. We’re likely going to see a 5.5-inch display on there, possible quad HD, and either the Snapdragon 801 or 805 processor powering it. I really hope it’s the Snapdragon 805 as the Xperia Z2 already has the Snapdragon 801 and with the Xperia Z3 already using some of the same specs as the Xperia Z2, I don’t think it’d be a good move for Sony. We’re thinking 3GB of RAM as well and probably 32GB or more of internal storage.

The Xperia Z3 is looking like a pretty good device, but it’s still going to have a lot of the same specs as the Xperia Z2. Which I still don’t get why Sony does 6-month release cycles these days. At IFA last year, we got the Xperia Z1, and now it looks like we’re getting the Xperia Z3 at IFA this year. Pretty crazy.
